A Miracle of Hope Book Review

I have a new Amish book to share with you called A Miracle of Hope written by Ruth Reid.

How far can God’s mercy reach? 
Lindie Wyse is pregnant out of wedlock and thinks an arranged marriage is the only way to preserve her future. Josiah Plank is certain he’ll never love again, but he needs someone to care for his eight-year-old daughter, Hannah. The two take on their arrangement tentatively at first but soon realize they are each in for more than they imagined. 
Lindie experiences a breakthrough with Hannah when she recognizes Hannah’s special gifts, but a risky pregnancy and serious health issues threaten to demolish the foundation Josiah and Lindie are building. Will their growing love survive despite their struggles, or will their hearts become as cold as the northern winter?
You will love this new story about Lindie & Josiah. It isn't your normal Amish story and you will be surprised to learn that their marriage isn't normal either by Amish standings.

Lindie did something one night and you won't know what that is until later on in the book, but the secret surrounding her pregnancy is difficult and no one knows the truth but her. She refuses to talk about it other than it wasn't the Amish boy that she loves, Moses. In fact, he and his family shun her and it leaves her brother no choice but to arrange a marriage with an old friend who lives in another state.

So, off Lindie goes to Michigan, far from Ohio where her only relative, her brother, lives. Josiah lost his wife three years ago and has a daughter who is deaf. What will all of them do? This is a great story and if you love reading Amish stories, this one will definitely delight you. Like I said, it's not your typical story and it's proof that they have their trials and troubles also. But, their faith gets them through the worst of it and hopefully they will come out in the end, knowing and receiving the love that they all deserve.

Happy Reading!
